Cheap and Chic, f'real

I've been trying to find a great transition party dress to wear to parties, weddings and general fancy nights out, and it's either really cheap, short and poorly made, or it's crazy expensive designer duds. Not so much with elle h outlet. I must say, I could get into some serious trouble on this site-they have great designer clothing at a fraction of the price-most savings are 60-75% off! Elle H also has a full price section with the latest and greatest, but I'm not a trend whore, so I could really care less what's cutting edge. Don't get me wrong, I believe in being fashionable, but you should never have to sell your body to science or dumpster dive to do so. Clothes should be well made of high quality, something that fits and flatters, and well, something I like to wear. Maybe that comes with age or maturity, or me being a bit tight fisted-with my cash, but elle h outlet is my new best friend when it comes to getting nice stuff, like Poleci, Nicole Miller, Walter, Tufi Duek, Hussy, Cynthia Steffe and Tocca on the discount.

p.s. no items featured in this article are over $150, f'real.

I Heart Jenny Packham

I really do. I wish I had a reason to buy her gowns. The fabrics, the embellishment, the draping..everything about her designs make me weak in the knees.

Cute Fix

Whenever I need a break or am in a sour mood, I look for ways to smile, and there is no greater cure for a blah mood than the itty bitty kitty committee. Even the name is adorable, and the imagery on this kitten adoption blog is off the charts on the cute scale. Plus, you can get involved, learn more about kitten fostering and help this worthwhile cause in the Seattle area. I'm on the east coast, but it made me want to get involved with my local animal charities and shelters, so I'm going to start volunteering at Faithful Friends and Forgotten Cats, so I can get my cute fix AND make a difference!

The Ensemble Dress

With my summer winding down and my the fall shopping itch tickling my brain, I find myself in need of easy outfits for weddings, meetings and nights out with friends. The popular ensemble dress, or as I'm calling it the "Tom Foolery Dress" is fast becoming a replacement for the little black dress, and I'm loving the look of a blouse or top, the look and sophistication of a skirt, but the ease and simplicity of a dress! So chic, so playful, and the perfect little thing to take us from Summer to Fall to winter-just throw on a cardigan, and layer on some tights and you've got a 4-Season Look!
